Kingston Maurward College has been awarded an accolade by National Pet Month.

They've been given a prize for running the 'Best Educational Establishment Event' for a third year in a row.

College students hold an "Animal Festival Day" each May - which attracts hundreds of people and also raises money for local charities.

Head Animal Conservation and Welfare technician Christine Rolfe said: "Everyone in the Animal Care and Welfare academy is delighted and pleased that we have won again; everyone worked really hard at the event to show best practice in animal welfare, as well as putting on an excellent family day out."

Student Daisy Stewart said: "Winning this competition gives us recognition for all the hard work we put in last year - it's an important event for us to be able to help people and offer advice about animals, and for visitors to get some hands on experience. And we're hoping this year's event will be even better!"

This year's Animal festival will take place on Sunday 8th May.
